From: Metabolic modeling of a chronic wound biofilm consortium predicts spatial partitioning of bacterial species

Number Species Direction Objective Reason
1 PA Maximize Growth rate Assumed primary objective
SA Growth rate
2 PA Minimize Acetate secretion flux Minimize byproduct synthesis
SA Acetate secretion flux
3 PA Minimize Succinate secretion flux Minimize byproduct synthesis
SA Lactate secretion flux
4 PA Maximize Glucose uptake flux Maximize nutrient consumption
SA
5 PA Maximize Oxygen uptake flux Maximize nutrient consumption
SA
6 PA Maximize Lactate uptake flux Maximize consumption of putative cross-fed metabolite
SA Succinate uptake flux
